Mike Rogers | Craig Morgan

Best known in Nashville for his drumming skills, many are shocked when they see and hear Mike Rogers up front playing guitar.  Little do they know guitar was his first instrument.  Born and raised in Myrtle Beach, SC, Rogers, whose father Tom was a South Carolina State Fiddle Champion, took an interest in music at a very early age.  By the end of high school Rogers was backing a former Liberty Records artist on drums and considering the move to Nashville.  After deciding to stay in Myrtle Beach, start a family and play at the local music theater, Rogers made the move to Nashville in 2002 where he would play drums and some acoustic guitar for the likes of Country artist Kevin Denney and Craig Morgan.  After a break from the drums to concentrate on lead vocals and acoustic guitar with Bluegrass Legend Doyle Lawson, Rogers made jump back into Country music and back to Craig Morgan, this time on acoustic, ganjo and steel guitar.  Rogers also includes singer, producer and songwriter to his resume.  In 2009 he co-wrote on of the most played songs for that year, “Bonfire” which was recorded by Craig Morgan.  He has since penned songs for Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, The Lonesome River Band and Jimmy Fortune. He also had the opportunity to produce, perform and write songs for Jimmy Fortune’s album “Lessons.”
